Short description:

Digital 24V module with 32 freely configurable in- and outputs as well as an EtherCAT and CAN interface.

The module made of aluminum is extremely compact and offers opportunities for DIN rail mounting. All interfaces are quickly and easily available on the front panel.

Connectivity technology
Use the 3-wire connection method all sensors and actuators can be connected directly to the module. The used Weidmüller clamps ensure a simple and extremely robust connection that makes the EC-DIO32 RM35 highly resistant and reliable. Every IO-block is galvanically isolated and obtains an own power supply. Thus, you can even use the EC-DIO32 for safety-relevant applications like emergency-stop circuits for guard-doors.

Fieldbus interfaces
Our latest IO-module provides 2 RJ45 connectors for EtherCAT and CAN as an easy possibility for  connecting other devices via ethernet patch cable. With its multi-fieldbus detection and the two   connectors the module can be used in different places and tasks in the CAN-bus network.

Signal processing
Due to the configuration of each block as a digital input, digital output or analogue input there are many areas of deployment. You can choose by your individual number and type of IOs about the configuration of the module, saving costs and cabling. It is even possible to address every block on its own.

Besides its inputs and outputs the module offers a powerful microcontroller that handles data acquisition of sensors, control of actors and the processing of any CAN and EtherCAT-data. An important safety function is the guarding capability which is fully integrated into the IO for network surveillance. Furthermore, there is a relay contact (changeover) as an additional safety measure. If there is an absence of guarding by the master registered, the module immediately goes into STOP-mode.

Diagnostic features
Analogue measurement of ower supply at the blocks and single channels as well as a digital monitoring of outputs are implemented in the device.
